COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Former Ohio State basketball coach Jim O'Brien asked a court Wednesday to rule that the university violated the terms of his contract when it fired him last year and owes him $3.5 million.
"Awarding Coach O'Brien money may not be the popular thing to do in Columbus, but it comports with the law and the deal deliberately struck by the university," O'Brien's lawyer, Joseph F. Murray, said in documents filed with the Ohio Court of Claims. O'Brien is asking the court to rule in his favor without a trial.
